Overview

Introducing the MIRA® Product Family

High-end residential and commercial buildings require high quality flatwork concrete to go along with them. Builders want to make sure that this concrete will be suitable for fast construction methods, so they turn to MIRA® products. The MIRA® family of mid-range water reducers bridge the performance between normal and high-range water reduction.  It offers excellent linear dosage water reduction capability, near neutral set times over a wide range of dosages and excellent placement and finishing properties.

MIRA® for superior dispersion

Some MIRA® products are formulated to provide excellent water reduction, compressive strength and set time when used in mix designs containing high pozzolan contents. These performance improvements are due to a superior dispersion and strength enhancing capability, plus superior quality control that ensures consistent performance.

Ready mix, paving plants and precast applications

Other MIRA® products are formulated to provide excellent overall performance as low-range to mid-range linear-dose water reducers. These can be used in a variety of applications, including ready mix, paving mixes and precast products. They produce higher early and ultimate compressive strengths, with neutral set times, allowing higher levels of water reduction less permeable and more durable concrete.
